- Just wanted to say that it was a great experience working with all of you at the ODCC workshop last week. Interacting with brilliant and inspirational people such as yourselves gave me much to ponder and reflect upon. One of the key insights I gained was a newer, richer, and deeper perspective of OD and its impact on our lives. The case studies that were shared were very motivating and I hope to reflect the insights I gained from all of you into my work going ahead. Thank you to Nancy and Patti for being excellent facilitators!–OD Consultant
